Fellow sophomore Abbie Krieser also had a great game, adding an additional 20 points of her own along with eight rebounds and five steals. The Bulldogs also were a perfect 7-7 from the free throw line.

The men also had a fantastic start to the game, holding a 44-27 lead at the half. They only added to that lead in the second half, putting up an additional 47 points. Three Bulldogs combined for 60 of the team’s 91 points. Sophomores Gage Smith and Bradley Bennett had 22 and 16 points apiece, while junior Garret Seagren put up 22 points of his own. Senior Gage Smith had a great game, obtaining a double-double with 11 rebounds and 11 assists.
